By Hannah Worthing4th February 2021

What were you doing before you joined Inspiretec?

I worked for 13 years at Unit4 Business Software based in my hometown of Swansea. Here I was a Lead test analyst managing a team of 8 QA’s, working predominantly within the educational sector.

What have you enjoyed about your first few weeks at Inspiretec?

Over the first few weeks I have enjoyed most the challenging nature of the role and that two days are never the same. I have also been made to feel very welcome and valued by everyone who I have had contact with which has made the transition into the role extremely comfortable.

How do you keep your knowledge/skills up to date?

In my spare time I frequently attend TEDx events within Swansea and I also annually attend and volunteer at SwanseaCon which is a large agile technical event for software developers, architects, project managers and consultants in Wales.

What is your favourite holiday destination and why?

My favourite holiday destination is Las Vegas. I was lucky enough to first visit a few years ago and was completely amazed by the large hotels and how each of them had their own different attractions, shops, shows etc. Since this trip I have read multiple books and watched nearly every documentary available about Las Vegas, it’s a complete obsession of mine.

Do you have any hobbies? How do you like to relax?

I am an active member of a mixed martial arts gym in Swansea where four nights a week I attend classes in Boxing, Kickboxing, Jiu Jitsu and Wrestling. I feel that over the past year of attending these classes it has built my confidence and developed my physical and mental wellbeing. To relax you will normally find me watching a crime documentary on Netflix and drinking a glass of wine!
